Corn and Avocado Relish

This relish is not only fantastic as a dip with tortilla chips, but is also a great accompaniment to grilled chicken or pan-sautéed fish. Prepare the relish first and store in the fridge while cooking the chicken or fish, and serve cold on top with a garnish of fresh basil.
